UCAN needs your support
You are why we do what we do - report, describe, comment, review. It is to bring to your eyes just what life is like for believers across Asia that we publish UCAN.
But as you know, the effort needs to be sustained if it is to have continuing effect.
UCAN publishes some 150 stories a week in four languages across six websites. We are grateful to benefactors in Europe and the US who support us. But those countries and the Church there are under increasing financial strain and their generosity no longer covers our costs.
We need financial help from our readers to sustain our efforts. Our reporters, editors, video producers and photographers all have families and we need to support them. They do excellent jobs, but they can't do their jobs for nothing.
Will you help us to sustain UCAN? Please click here to help.
Thanks in anticipation.

Blind girls put on a show for White Cane Day
- October 15, 2012
ÔÇťOur society has failed to mature when dealing with┬áthose who are not┬ácompletely giftedÔÇŁ, said Saba Youas who lives at the Ananias Rehabilitation Center for visually impaired females, on the outskirts of Lahore.
The two hour program, which included singing, acting in tableaux and reading from a Braille Bible, won warm applause from the audience.
The center, which celebrated its 14th birthday this weekend, is run by Caritas Pakistan Lahore CPL. It offers free education to 25 girls, aged six to 20.
